Spanish translation provided by Otis Vicens, NP4G) on the INDEXA's website:

to Kanton Island, Central Kiribati (T31EU) which took place earlier this
year. This DXpedition had support from INDEXA's DXpedition Fund and from
INDEXA's "Hams with Hearts" Fund.

benefactor of INDEXA's "Hams with Hearts" Fund, Zorro Miyazawa (JH1AJT) has
been named Honorary Advisor to Bhutan's Olympic Committee President as he
continues his encouragement of education and healthy growth for youth in
various nations of the world.

Island accompanied by his father. It is a pleasant story of a father and
son reconnecting as adults.
If you have ever wondered about the process of how INDEXA processes requests
for DXpedition funding, INDEXA President Bob Schenck (N2OO) provides the
membership with a rundown of how it all happens.
